From the ridiculous to the clean, Darwin Nunez is Liverpool’s folk hero for a motive

18: 50 , Ben Fleming

The creator in chief, it transpires, is the actual person that wreaks havoc. There is an unheard of presence at the tip of Liverpool’s leaderboard for assists this season. It’s no longer Mohamed Salah, though nobody has made more wishes in the Premier League. Nor is it Trent Alexander-Arnold, although he can total passes others cannot even imagine.

However Darwin Nunez has more assists than both, two in three minutes in the Carabao Cup semi-closing taking him into double figures for the season. His first abet against Fulham became laced with anxiety for Marco Silva’s aspect, Curtis Jones’s shot going in by activity of a hefty deflection.

His 2nd contained more merit, a surge into the penalty dwelling and a staunch low centre for Cody Gakpo to discover a purpose that might well well derive Liverpool to Wembley.
